Product Description

If you are looking to apply an extremely strong protective coating that will leave an incredible layer of gloss simultaneously then the 22ple VX1 Signature Glass Coating is for you. This product is a truly unique form of protection that is unlike traditional sealants or waxes but applies just as easy. VX1 will leave behind a hardened high silica-content glass barrier between your paint and harmful environmental elements. It protects the surface in a unique way so contamination will not readily stick to the surface. Later on your wash mitt will glide across the paint with ease, removing the contamination safely and easily. Water will even bead and roll off the surface like never before, making the drying process faster and safer which reduces the risk of marring the paint! The protection is strong but also extremely durable making it far superior to traditional waxes and sealants. While sealants and waxes provide you with up to 6 months of protection, you can expect a whopping 18-24 months with VX1! If you're worried about the shine don't bother because it is a warm and deep gloss that commands your attention. Since you're literally applying a glass like coating to the surface you're getting that "hard candy" or "wet" appearance everyone loves. This coating will truly distinguish your vehicle from others and preserve it's value for years to come. If you are looking for a semi-permanent paint coating that makes the paint look better than new while offering durable protection then the 22ple VX1 is for you!

Sizing Recommendations:
  • 20ml - Great for touch-ups or motorcycles.
  • 30ml - Best size for single vehicle applications. With some experience with the product you can get multiple applications out of this size.
  • 50ml - Best if you are looking to perform multiple applications or want to apply on multiple vehicles.
22ple Application Instructions:
  1. Ensure the surface is cleaned & polished.
  2. Remove all oil/polishes on the surface by doing an IPA (Isopropyl Alcohol) wipe down. Use a mixture of 50% Isopropyl Alcohol with 50% distilled water.
  3. Please make sure the surfaces are cool and TOTALLY dry before applying the glass coat.
  4. Pour a small amount of glass coat liquid onto the 22ple Glass Coat Applicator (Double Sided) and apply in a straight line motion. Do not over-apply as it does not give you additional benefit, but it might make it difficult to remove.
  5. Make sure ALL surfaces are covered. You should then buff off the coating with a clean, lint-free microfiber towel within 3-5 minutes in normal room temperature. Should you encounter any dried coating, simply reapply another layer over it and buff. If an area becomes dry / tacky, then it's a sign that you allowed it to sit on the surface too long. We like to use 2 towels for removal. The first for main product removal, and then immediately go over it again with the second towel to ensure that you have completely removed all residue. As a good rule of thumb, apply 22ple to just 2 panels / sections at a time, and then proceed with residue removal. If you extend any more than this, the coating will dry too much and can become tacky.
  6. Cure time - Do not wash your car or expose the car to open weather element,rain, snow etc for around 8-12 hours.
  7. After this initial curing time, the car can be washed or driven per normal.
  8. The full curing time is about 5 days, at which time the full layer of the coat will be hardened and the surface will look its best.
  9. Do not reuse any applicator pads used to apply this coating. 22ple will dry and harden these applicator pads and if used again they could potentially mar the paint.

22ple has been my go-to glass coating for several years. The gloss is un-matched in my opinion by any other coating I've used before, and I've tried the vast majority of them. The other factor I love is it's ease of use. Many other coatings can be troublesome to use due to their elaborate installation, and then you're usually battling high spots and other issues. I recently had a client bring in his 612 Scaglietti in for a maintenance detail after 3 years of having had the coating on and the VX1 was still holding strong. I would have to say that no glass coating is a suit of armor, so proper technique to maintain the appearance has to be considered.

So I purchased this product based on the pro reviews. I recently purchased a Ford Excursion and used it as my "test" vehicle. After a long arduous paint cleaning, clay, and correction I IPA wiped the truck then applied the 22ple signature. Even on a vehicle as huge as the Excursion, I still had 1/2 a large bottle left. I was impressed with the level of gloss, and vehicle repelled dust until it was finally rained on. I was shocked at the beading during the first wash as I have never seen such small water beads. Multiple people commented on paint quality and condition of the truck.
I am hoping the durability lives up to expectations as I find my time very limited. As a torture test I decided to treat the truck like a consumer. I power wash it then single bucket wash with a sponge. Drying is accomplished with an old shower towel. So far the product has protected the paint from light scratches (via LED examination) even with that crazy wash routine. It has only been a few months, but so far I am impressed enough to buy a bottle of Pro for my Selby. I will let you know when it appears that the protection has faded.

A quick follow up for my initial review. The excursion that I coated months ago still looks great. I noticed that the coating endured the abuse of a service mat on the fender along with a few of my careless washes. The product isn't a panacea for all abuse, but it certainly seems to reduce the amount of scratching. I have also noted that in dusty Arizona the truck stays cleaner longer extending my wash periods. I was impressed enough to buy more and coated 2 more vehicles since my first application. A quick pointer, if you over apply and let the product set, you can go back and level with an IPA wipe and reapply to fix any issues. See my review in the 22PLE pro product page to read how my Shelby went.

I bought the Signature version of this because I was too impatient to wait for the Pro version to ship. Looking at the results of my application, I'm not quite sure I could see the Pro being any better, because my car looks amazing. Application couldn't be any easier. As stated by the instructions, the shine improved over the days following application. It has been over two weeks since I applied it and my car still looks great. I just washed it and was impressed by how effortlessly my mitt traveled across the surface. I noticed a huge difference in sheeting water off the car (there was almost no water left!). This product is amazingly simple to apply and amazingly effective.
